Sick Betta Need Help
I am new to bettas so I tend to freak out when they do what I think are "strange" things. However, this time I think there is something really really wrong. Greg (the fish) has a very HUGE belly like he ate way way too much or is pregnant (which I know he isn't cause he's a male). Along with the huge belly he also doesn't swim around a lot just hangs out at the bottom of the tank or in his house and he doesn't come up for food which he used to "run" for when I opened the lid to the tank. What is wrong with my fish? Please help
Ok Greg is in a 10gallon divided tank giving him about 5gallons he shares with a small placastomus. He does have a heater that is on the far side of the tank. I have no idea if he is pooping or not cause the sucker fish poops more than any fish I have ever seen. As to water conditions I'm not sure what you mean so i'll just ramble about what I do know and that might help. The temp is about 80degrees which is what it has been at since I got Greg. I use TopFin Betta Water Conditioner which he has also had since he was placed in the tank. I changed it about a week ago before adding the placastomus. and no this didn't happen right after the placta was introduced and no the placta doesn't pick on Greg.
